The CEO of Canadian Jewish Congress is who the bio (a very small part) isn't entirely free from having 'emotional contacts' with Jewish persecution. I have total sympathy for what his family has been through but that also makes him prejudiced towards all real and perceived prejudices. It doesn't say he was the one who wrote the letter, he certainly wasn't the one I saw on a televised (almost) debate.

This update mentioned a Judge had already ruled on a motion, that ruling enforced the ban. I had posted a bit on one Judge that didn't lift anything but his comments were anything but harsh towards Mr Galloway, he even quoted the law that would be his 'best' defense. The update also gave the name of the CEO whose partial bio is above.

Any idea if any info is available on this decision,
"overrule the CBSA decision, which found Galloway had violated Canadian law by providing funds to Hamas, a designated terrorist organization"
How does Hamas get Canada to take them off a terrorist list?
Demanding that it make all it's citizens put down their rocks is not something any Nation can accomplish. When invaded some will resist through violense since that is the method being used against them the most.
The peace deal that ended in Dec was not the first one Hamas has entered into. How well they have done can only be determined by comparing infractions. 1 death is 1 infraction, 1 act of causing fear is an infraction, and the list goes on.
Just what does 'all options on the table' mean? It means if things don't change of their 'free will' force through violence will be used, and when it's the US Gov saying it, it could mean atomic. That isn't terror? What is the actual printed definition that clearly separates the two actions. From a distance only the body count is different.
Canada cleared on of our own after he was 'rendered a terrorist and taken for a confined interview'. After a fact finding mission they cleared him of all allegations and when we asked the US to remove his name fron their watch list they said no. (something to do with once tortured always a threat kind of thing)
Between two cease-fires Israel unloaded train-loads of explosives on Gaza, a few years before that it was the same thing unloaded on Lebanon.
What does Israel have to do to get on that watch list???
Hamas can still pursue the removal of Israel by the high courts. If one doesn't exist already then do it in the UN and the big 5 get duct-taped and put in the corner until a resolution has been approved by all remaining countries. Then turn 'the big 5' loose if the resolutions are not complied with in a speedy and voluntary manner.
